One way to stand out from the crowd in the hospitality industry is to offer great guest amenities. Here at AVM we’re constantly on the lookout to improve the amenities we provide for you and your guests. We’ve recently brought in some new amenity lines such as Beekman 1802, Eco Fresh Naturals, & Serene Elements. Let’s take a closer in depth look at the story behind Beekman 1802, and where it comes from.
Beekman 1802: for city people who dream of the country and for country people who dream of the city. Artisan goods that combine sophisticated city design with natural country goods. The “Fresh Air” collection will have your guests smelling like a bright spring morning in the country. Features & benefits subtle fragrances & formulas gentle enough for everyday use and of course there are no nasty ingredients. No parabens, no petroleum, no mineral oil, no diethanolamine, no paraffin, no banned phthalates. (We don't even know what half those things are!) The collection is made with purified water, and is cruelty free, no animal testing. http://www.goavm.com/beekman-1802-c-1782.aspx
What makes the Beekman 1802 brand so intriguing? The story behind Brent & Josh’s farm is pretty extraordinary. They purchased the historic 60 acre Beekman 1802 Farm in 2007. Originally as just a weekend getaway from their hectic NYC lives, the farm became their lifeline after both men lost their jobs within one month of each other during the recession of 2008. Faced with possible foreclosure, the pair made a decision – if they were going to save their farm, they would have to make it profitable. After taking in a neighboring farmer and his herd of beloved dairy goats, they began producing soaps and cheese. As other neighbors taught them how to farm, they shared their city-honed skills – starting a website and Mercantile. Brand founders Brent and Josh were the winners of The Amazing Race for Season 21 in 2012. They have also been featured with their own television show called “The Fabulous Beekman Boys”. The Beekman 1802 brand has grown to include a full line of soaps and skin care products, clothing, gardening items, home wares, and even The Beekman 1802 Heirloom cookbook. Beekman products have also recently been featured by Target stores. The amenity line was originally introduced by the boutique-inspired hotels Andaz Wall Street and Andaz 5th Avenue in New York. The Beekman 1802 amenity line was designed as a modern, yet understated take on luxury. It includes four elegantly appointed bottles for the liquid products, as well as two goat milk bath bars dressed in a classic white wrapping. Product packaging is 100% recycled material. They’ve also got a pretty nifty little Live Goat Cam page on their website where you can watch the baby goats live on the farm.
